Park Theatre building razed

The old Park Theatre building on El Camino Real in Menlo Park was torn down last week.

From 1947, when it opened, to 2002, when it closed, the theater was a local movie venue for generations of local residents.

The razing followed a sale the previous weekend of items from the theater, with marquee letters proving most popular.

Although owner Howard "Sandy" Crittenden said late last year that he planned to build office and retail on the site, located at 1275 El Camino Real in Menlo Park, he told the Almanac last week that he now plans to sell the property and use the proceeds to buy something outside the city.
